The Invisible Flood Control Wall (IFCW™) is a removable flood wall that is erected before a flood event occurs. After the flood, the wall is easily demounted and stored. The IFCW™ is in extensive use, with hundreds of installations across the United States and has been analyzed and accepted for use by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, with installations on many Corps of Engineers projects. Flood Control America is the industry leader and a pioneer of removable flood barrier systems in the United States.

“Sandbagging is labor intensive. Then when the emergency passes, nobody is left to dispose of the sandbags. With the IFCW panels, you only put up what you need. They’re light, so you only need a few people. We’re really happy with it…we could maintain the view of the river that way.” - Ron Arends, City Engineer, Cedar Falls, Iowa
